A dress for mum

Although I have been making my sisters prom dress I really fancied having a change of scenery and It turned out to be perfect timing for my mums birthday coming up. I really love this dress and now I'm dying to make one for myself!

I did a few things I hadn't done before in the construction such as the facing for around the neckline (which meant I could practice my understitching) and the invisable zip which I have only done once before.

 

 

 

 

 

My mums dress is view D on the pattern, I think next time I will add a lining to make it easier to slip on and off as I have used cotton and the design is quite figure hugging.

Overall I love this pattern and it was refreshing to make something simple but impressive. I will definitely be making this one again.

 

 

Next week I should be nearly finished with the prom dress so hopefully I'll have some more pictures to show you in the next update...
